Spirulina is 100% natural and a highly nutritious micro salt water plant. It was discovered in South America and Africa in natural alkaline lakes. This spiral shaped algae is a rich food source. For a long time (centuries) this algae has constituted a significant part of the diet of many communities. Since the 1970's, Spirulina has been well known and widely used as a dietary supplement in some countries.
Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein (60~ 63 %, 3~4 times higher than fish or beef ), multi Vitamins (Vitamin B 12 is 3~4 times higher than animal liver), which is particularly lacking in a vegetarian diet. It contains a wide range of minerals (including Iron, Potassium, Magnesium Sodium, Phosphorus, Calcium etc.), a high volume of Beta- carotene which protects cells (5 times more than carrots, 40 times more than spinach), high volumes of gamma-Linolein acid (which can reduce cholesterol and prevent heart disease). Furthermore, Spirulina contains Phycocyanin which can only be found in Spirulina. In USA, NASA have chosen to use it for astronauts food in space, and even plan to grow and harvest it in space stations in the near future.
Grown in a pollution free environment and crystal clear mineral water of the Northern Territory, Australian Spirulina is the only Spirulina grown in Australasia (Australia & New Zealand). Australian Spirulina has the lowest bacteria and heavy metal content compared to US standards (pdf 70K). A recent article published in the Suadi Journal of Biological Sciences established Australian Spirulina as the most pure form of Spirulina on the international market (Al-Dhabi, 2013). Using leading technology with our own unique & special spray drying method, we dry Spirulina in less than 10 seconds to retain the optimal amount of vitamins and enzymes. Unique to our tablet manufacturing system, Australian Spirulina is 100% pure without any binder or artificial additives.
